About

The pas de deux, a symbol of accomplished form and technique, is one of the most emblematic figures of classical ballet — and in its very own way the duet by Raimund Hoghe and the Japanese dancer Takashi Ueno is a virtuoso performance as well. What separates and what unites us? In Pas de Deux, the first glance, the first movement remains constantly present, when the two dancers almost unnoticeably open up their worlds: their different ages, different bodies, journeys through life, recollections. Between introspection and the wealth of gestures in the history of dance, a movement dialogue develops. Approaching one another and repeatedly seeking distance, they play out the moment of encounter in ever new variants and nuances, slip into ever new roles for one another, with one another or alone, explore ever new possibilities of their relationship and also of their own view of themselves. Pas de Deux is a pas de deux in which Raimund Hoghe develops his unmistakeable choreographic language and opposes the spectacular with poetry and an impressive attention to the human. Presented by the Greenwich Dance and Trinity Laban Partnership.
